Many thanks for all these valuable feedbacks!
Let me answer to some of the comments:
Strobe internal issues - source?
Apart from errbrr, it seems that all of experienced reliability with your Inon strobes themselves (not mentioning the FOs here)...............
Maybe it was just obstructing dirt on housing side afterwards, but if I experience some more issues I'll definitely cut the housing-sides of the FOs. Are you saying that a sharp knife would do the trick, or scissors? Is there any partiuclar way to shape the cut for light to travel better.
I am thinking this actually could be the cause, as among last weeks I have regularly removed/inserted my FOs from housing side (which I didn't do in the past), and have possibly damaged them.
Battery cells were fine I presume, as I charge them regularly, and the red ready light came on quite quickly..............................................
Thanks again for all the help!
as Jim Anderson has said above I just cut the affected ends off with a sharp Craft Knife straight across the cables. I learnt early on to
put the FO cable ends in my mouth to wet with saliva before inserting. This helped to avoid the ends bending or flexing when inserting
into the cable ports on the housing. I felt that over time the repeated bending could turn the clear plastic milky.
All in all I have no complaints for my Inon strobes. They are compact, relatively light and do what I want when I want. Just wished that
manual was easier to read I have however used them 90% of the time for macro and only in temperate water, so haven't pushed
